of this administration. it's the norm because the economy collapsed. we all remember that the economy collapsed. and to withdraw federal spending from a collapsing economy is only to make things worse. the economic collapse created these deficits, and as the economy recovers, we can draw this will down. now, there's not aagreement on that. some have preached austerity as the way forward when the economy coul lapses. -- collapses of the and when this withstand, there was lively debate between those who support that would be more sensible than austerity. we're past us a started and now into experience much the experience of foreign countries belies that austerity works when economies are collapse ago. from spain to greece, european countries that responded to the economic downturn by slashing their budgets are suffering from shrinking economies and persistent double-digit unemployment rates. a recent i.m.f. report estimates that budget austerity in a weak economy might actually inflict significant harm and have a much lower-than-expected effect on the deficit, consistent with the observations in
but be a lot colder. >> pelley: david, thanks very much. the economy has turned unexpectedly cloudy. government data out today showed the economy shrank for the first time since the great recession. it contracted at an annual rate of 0.1% the last three months of 2012. the economy had grown 3.1% the previous quarter. a shrinking economy over time spells recession, but don't panic yet. this number is likely to be revised as more data come in. senior business correspondent anthony mason found this dark cloud may have a silver lining. >> reporter: the headline may be disappointing, but the underlying economy was showing renewed strength at the end of last year. consumer spending, which drives two-thirds of the economy, was up 2.2%. home building soared more than 15% and contributed to economic growth in 2012 for the first time in six years. only government spending cuts on defense caused overall economic growth to flatline. julia coronado is chief economist with p.n.b.-paribas. >> the fiscal tightening is taking a toll. it took a toll on growth in 2012. it will take a toll again in 2013. >> report

. often they do that in the shadow economy, a place where employers may offer them less than the minimum wage or make them work overtime without extra pay. when that happens, it's not as bad for them, it's bad for the entire economy, because all the businesses that are trying to do the right thing that are hiring people legally, paying a decent wage, following the rules, they are the ones to suffer. they have got to compete against companies that are breaking the rules. the wages and working conditions of american workers are threatened as well. if we are truly committed to strengthening our middle-class and providing more ladders of opportunity to those who are willing to work hard to make it into the middle class, we've got to fix the system. we have to make sure that every business and every worker in america is pulling by the same set of rules. we have to bring in the shadow economy into the light so that everybody is held accountable. the businesses and the immigrants getting on the right side of the law. common-sense. that's why we need comprehensive immigration reform. host: presi
to essentially double fuel economy up to 54.5 miles per gallon. it does it in a way that collaborates with the automakers themselves in a way that will produce the kind of cars that are safe and effective and performed the way americans consume or want to see and will really provide tremendous societal benefits. so what is a win for everyone and that is my basic message. if you look at it on the climate change site, what we're talking about is over the course of 2012 through 2025, vehicles will reduce carbon pollution by 6 billion metric tons. were talking about 12 and arrows of oil saved. these are numbers not to be sneezed at, ladies and gentlemen. these are very large benefits for society. we saw automakers standing up, touting this initiative because they knew they could produce cars are more efficient and consumers who want to purchase. on the consumer side, perhaps consumers here are the biggest winners of all. they're going to get cars that perform the way they want better safe, that is, provide them utility they need, but they're going to save money in their pocketbooks every
. >> tomorrow's jobs report, more ominous signs for the economy and now, pink slips for the president's jobs council. >> welcome everyone, i'm in for neil neil cavuto. and one day after learning the economy is shrinking, news that the job marketes -- democrats say it's because federal spending is drying up. to craig smith who says that argument is all wet. craig? >> you know what? i think i'm going to agree with the democrats. federal spending is drying up. it was down and look what happened. well, thankfully, federal spending is stopping, because look at everything that they've been doing, eric? up in of it has been working, and when you start to think this whole thing through, they're going to blame it on bush or the republicans and they're going to say, this was all part of theses quickster done the sequestration deal, and everybody stopped spending but you know the seed0s the last quarter's gdp were sow n in the summer of 2012 when president obama put politics ahead of our national security or any economic growth. its its ridiculous. >> that's the most important word, growth. when the ec
's economy, few families have a stay-at-home mother. in fact, 71% of mothers today are in the labor force. they are major contributors to their family's income. two-thirds of mothers bring home at least a quarter of their family's earning, and more than four of ten families with children, a woman is the majority, or sole breadwinner. that means in today's economy, when a mother earns less than her male colleagues, her family -- her family -- must sacrifice basic necessities as well as facing greater difficulty for these kids to save for college, affording a home, living the american dream. and the lifetime of earnings -- earning losses that all women face, including those women without children or whose children are growing up affects not only their well-being during their working lives, as i said earlier, their ability to save and have a decent retirement. now the evidence shows that discrimination accounts for much of the pay act. in fact, according to one study, when you look at all the reasons that there is a wage gap, well, we have rates 2.4%, 3.5% union status, labor force experienc
and cuts in defense spending. it did not announce any new action to stimulate the economy. wall street reacted by giving up some of its recent gains. the dow jones industrial average lost 44 points to close at 13,910. the nasdaq fell 11 points to close at 3,142. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: whither the economy? that's been the question for quite a while now. today, there was a surprising and perhaps confusing new twist. the commerce department reported that gross domestic product actually shrank in the last quarter of 2012. the drop was small, one tenth of a percent. but it was still the first time economic output had fallen in three and a half years. government spending dropped, most dramatically in the defense sector. the report, though, also contained some positive developments: consumer spending and business investment were both up. and yesterday, the so-called case-shiller index found that housing prices grew in 20 major cities by an average of 5.5% over the previous year. it was the biggest gain in six years. we talk it through, with joe

to bring down the debt. not just as a share of economy, but overall. you're right. it doesn't bring down the debt. at all. mr. speaker, that's the conflict that we face here as a people, as a country, not as republicans, not as democrats, but as a people. on the one hand, what our politicians are saying is we're going to use the money to pay down our debt. but what the reality is is that proposers are coming out today that never, ever, ever pay down a penny of debt. now, mr. speaker, if you want to see that for yourself, you can look. the president's budget each year is posted online, on the o.m.b. website. the first one he submitted, i hold the cover page here, was called a new era of responsibility. it was the first budget that the president ever submitted. but as i go through that budget, mr. speaker, what i see is projects -- proximates for 2020, for 20 -- projections for 2020, for 2030, for 2040, for 260 and for 2080 -- 20 of 6 -- 2060 and for 2080. you hear that, you have children. 2020, 2030, 2040, 2060 and 2080. and in each one of those years, according to the president's budget,
a new set of challenges after the commerce department reported yesterday that the nation's economy shrank for the first time since the great recession. >> how did that happen? >> well, government data shows the gross domestic product contracted at a .1% rate in the fourth quarter of 2012. it was the first decline since 2009. it put the white house on the defensive after months of touting steady job growth. >> there's more work to do, and our economy is facing a major headwind which goes to your point, and that's republicans in congress. talk about letting the sequester kick in, as though that were an acceptable thing belies where republicans were on this issue not that long ago, and it makes clear, again, that this is political brinksmanship of the kind that results in one primary victim, and that's american taxpayers, the american middle class. >> okay. what do you think is going on there, joe? >> i think what's going on is that we have spent more money as a government over the past four years than we have in the history of the republic. added $6 trillion in debt. and we have just

"nightly news" begins now. >>> from nbc news world headquarters in new york, this is "nbc nightly news" with brian williams. >>> good evening. the people at the brady campaign to prevent gun violence, the people who also compile the numbers, tell us that so far today, 203 people have been shot in this country. that's just today, and just as of 6:00 p.m. eastern time. among the shootings, kauffman, texas, an assistant district attorney gunned down and killed outside the courthouse where he worked. lincoln, nebraska. a man shot while in his apartment building after two armed men burst in. atlanta, georgia. a 14-year-old student shot in the head at price middle school this afternoon, one person
to republicans today demanding they move quickly to stop devastating budget cuts that could damage the economy and throw hundreds of thousands of people out of work. these are automatic cuts the congress agreed to. and they're going to go into effect in three weeks unless lawmakers act now. the president is fighting the republicans cut, cut, cut obsession. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. our economy right now is headed in the right direction. and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of washington. >> this self-inflicted wound would include massive cuts to virtually every government program. from medicare and housing to head start and food aid for children. the president wants republicans to delay those cuts through a balanced approach that would force corporations and the wealthy to giv
somethings looking for a better life, better economy. promises made during the revolution. it never came through. the violence has decreased. nothing what we saw over the weekend. but you have people here defying the president's declaration of a curfew and emergency rule where we are in port said. the curfew is technically supposed to go in place in a few hours. but people have told the president, we know there is a curfew. we are protesting anyway. clearly defying him. >> who is in control on the streets? when you look at the pictures you say there is good news that the violence isn't what it was. is there a sense they will continue between the government and protesters that's playing out? lost the signal. we're going to try to get back to him as soon as we can. the turmoil in egypt. real concern for hillary clinton. she talked to cnn about those challenges and what she thinks egypt's struggling new government needs to do. >> it's difficult going from a closed regime and essentially one man rule to a democracy that's trying to be born and learn to walk. there are clear lessons. you have

. the economy is deteriorating. you can come up with any excuses you like. hurricane sandy did, the republicans or lower defense spending but the fact is numbers are what they are. the economy is contracting. layoffs are at far too high a level. if you dig into today's report, in december the holiday period our spending in america went up only .2%. a deteriorating economy, bill. bill: that is paltry. the gdp number, help me understand because they explain the drop-off with cuts to defense spending, right? if that is the case, is it only federal spending that is keeping us going in any direction? >> hold on a second. there is always an excuse. over the past four years whenever the economy has turned sour there has been an excuse. the japanese tsunami. the egyptian arab spring, the europeans, trouble in japan, the republicans, the downgrade, hurricane sandy. drop-off in defense spending. there is always an excuse. the fact is, we have never achieved a robust expansion since the end of the recession. now this latest go round yesterday when the economy showed to be contracting it was blamed on lowe
debate. >> there is no question that the economy is what the elections are about. but i would point out to the scholars that there were two chefs in public opinion during this campaign. the first one came after the first debate. when suddenly, here came romney and people said, that look like obama was going to run away with it, and the second change came at the end of the democratic convention, after the speech by bill clinton. these chefs do change minds and i think fat they are one of the best parts of the campaign process and i think that we need to have more debates. >> but let me say to the scholars, they overlook the obvious and maybe that is why they are scholars. [laughter] no, that is applied -- that is not a put down. scholars need to go beyond the obvious. that is what makes them scholars. what is obvious is that 64 million people watched the first debate. four years ago was about the same number and there was no two-one change like there was in 2012 of what the debates too, they are confirming exercises. and the scholars tend to say, they did not change any votes and as a co

. you know, the average investor is seeing the economy make small improvements. we're seeing improvements in the housing market, consumer spending is going up. i spoke with one trader who was a little concerned that this is an artificial rally system littlit stimulated by the fed. >> you can say we have already been here. but you can say we came from the depths of despair, we're much higher but the thing that will cause people to continue to to be concerned is it still ahead of itself. is there a correction coming because the fed created this -- manufactured this rally. >> but, brooke, you know, think of the stock market as a big old rubber band. as much as it went down in 2009, march of 2009, the low for the dow was 6500, now we're seeing it bounce back almost to 14,000. you know how that is. what goes up, i don't want to say it, brooke. >> darn that economic gravity. alison kosik, thank you very much. we want to keep talking about this. we were thinking why doesn't wall street match what we're seeing on main street. we'll talk about that with steven moore, wall street journ
is expected to sign this bill immediately. >>> now to the economy and the financial markets. stocks fell a bit today with all three major indexes modestly lower. but for the month, the dow was up almost 6%, the best since january in '94. nasdaq gained 4%, s&p just over 6. its best january since '97. what is the market surge trying to tell us when mixed in with some bad news out there, as well? and on the eve of another big jobs report? our report from nbc's tom costello. >> reporter: 25-year-old kory wilson can tell you, it's not easy looking for a job. she has applied for 200 since earning a master's degree in public relations last may. >> being a post graduate, either i'm overqualified or i'm underqualified. >> she is looking for work, but the economy seemingly poised to either take off or take a stumble. today new applications brought employment benefits jumped by 38,000. but they hit five-year lows the previous two weeks. personal income and spending both grew in december. the housing market seems to be improving, and while the economy actually shrank in the fourth quarter, many blame gove
they got the majority in the 2010 election. >> it's the economy. liz: david and gains. david: cheryl casone, good to have you here. thank you so much. melissa: i am melissa francis and here's what is "money" tonight. it could be the next california. how close is the breaking point and can the taxman save it? the power panel breaks it down. plus, he's in what is going on in salt lake city lately? a group of doctors declared a health emergency warning premature birth and miscarriag miscarriages. the group's leader joins us with the diagnosis. and unusual hand drawn top nba recruits three high-stakes poker tournament. not sure they make great executives. the man behind the plan joins us exclusively to lay out his cards. even when they say this not, it is all about money. so tonight we start with a huge hit to illinois, the critic has been knocked down from an aide to an a- from credit rating agency. now tied with illinois the lowest rating in the country. is our country going down the drain one state at a time, in what state is next? partner along with charles payne payne. i think that is abe
. it was probably a mistake. he wanted i am sure to show the appear ranges of activity while the economy has remained langwith for these years. we had a deep recession and sputtering and at that time the president wanted to show he cared. he created a blue ribbon commission. how come you are not meeting with them more. when will was the last time you met with them. why don't you talk to these people why don't you worry about jobs. at the closure it's embarrassing with such high unemployment, 23, 24 million people in the wrong situation just not the optics are bad. >> their mission was in the president's view an important one. a lot of people look at this as one, when president obama had a background he never ran a company and never worked for a company. he was a community organize he were and worked at a law firm. didn't work in business. so this was a way in which he would have outreach directly to the business community about their concerns and help guide his agenda toward creating more jobs. he barely met with them and now it's done, chris. is this not just an invitation for more criticis
and we need a successful resolution to the information. >> breaking news on the economy sparking a new debate over the president's priorities for his second term as washington talks of gun violence and immigration reform the commerce department announces the economy shank in the last quarter of 2012. this is not only the single decline of 2012 we did not shrink in any more quarter. it is the first drop we have seen in 3 and a half years. why thare they talking firearms and immigration reform instead of ways to put people back to work. daily beast columnist kirsten powers. we sat out there when he made his inaugural address some of the panel skrcontract sized president obama for talking about things like immigration reform and gun control and his push on green energy. where was the talk about jobs and the economy and now we see this economic news about how we slunk in the fourth quarter. >> the president has to be concerned about the economy. you can't be president and ignore what's going on economically. the problem is what direction he is going to go. he wants to focus on deficit redu
't come back in. dealing with that is a critical component. >> that's a part of it. this economy cannot function without people to do the jobs americans won't do. >> quickly, with that said, we would be fooling ourselves this morning if we didn't look at this immigration debate and understand there might not be a tinge of the gun debate involved where you have people in new york and people in washington and people at the networks and national newspapers all supporting this and even a lot of the leaders inside washington d.c. where the rest of america is a bit more wary and skeptical. if you don't believe that, go to the conservative websites, the national review, go to several others. the "wall street journal" says it is a promising framework and i think it is. there are a lot of conservative outlets that have yet to weigh in on this aggressively. they will start that now. the phone calls will start the congressional offices and just like the gun debate, you will have people energized who want this bill killed and congress will get 10-1 calls against this immigration bill and they have
? >> guest: what i see is in an economy that isn't growing fast enough to produce many jobs. the unemployment rate was 7.8% in december, and, you know, it had looked like it was moving down and now we see that it pops up. and the reason for that is 157,000 jobs created in an economy with 140 million workers is not a lot. it's not enough to keep up with growth in the labor force, so, you know, this is a fundamental problem in our economy. you might argue the fundamental problem in our economy right now is that we're not growing fast enough to bring the unemployment rate down to levels that most americans would find acceptable. and we can have a loan discussion about -- long discussion about why we're not growing fast enough. you know, you could argue that the economy needs more investment, that the government should be providing more stimulus. you could argue the government is getting in the way. you can also argue that it's a res due of the financial crisis. >> host: the number of employed persons was -- little changed in january. the number of long-term unem employed unchanged to 4.7 million
to the economy that we are not going to like. the headline from last week about the slowing of our gdp, it is going to be a situation where it is no longer acceptable to kick the can. so, when we talk about the need for tax reforms, i am one who says that we have got to put it all on the table. we have got to be willing to make some very difficult choices. the options if we fail to act are not something that most in this country will be satisfied with. >> i know that says you want to take a look at some of the energy initiatives here. in the house they talked about doing energy efficiency legislation puc that moving? still questionable? >> let me just start by saying that i am a firm believer in doing more in this country when it comes to efficiency. it is one of the legs of the energy tool that is absolutely critical to us. i think it is often overlooked. people look -- people look to the old technologies and there are things making news. someone joked to me once that if we could just figure out how to have a groundbreaking or ribbon cutting that involved some kind of energy efficienc
that three of mind -- six of mine, three of them were the economy. and that really stunned everybody. >> and even getting into this, this is the experience of the league of women voters, they sponsored the debate in 1976 and 1984 and for the sake of transparency i was one of the reporters that ask questions in 1984. when we finished with that, they pulled out of the sponsorship and argued at the time that there was too much party interference and they said that they had no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the american public. i think that this is terribly tough language, but my question -- this is overstated. >> but my question to you is not as moderators but as reporters. is this something where there may be the beginning of too cozy a relationship between the parties, and the public? i did ally don't -- foreign policy debate and two of my sections were the middle east. are you going to talk about foreign policy without talking about the middle east? >> it is so obvious, why do this? >> if they don't want to do this, this is fine with me. >> one thing you wan
. this is what i tell secretary geithner. the time has come, since our economies are connected, for there to be a positive movement in the european crisis, but then i think these budget negotiations, which are not based on simply -- based on human beings and republicans and democrats getting together. i think it is very doable and possible. one thing we have ignored at this meeting, there was an election that just happened, and the message of the election, i believe, is guys, women, you've got to get together, or there is going to be a third party. >> that is one of the reasons we have been having these conversations. >> but it is out now. it is on the cable channels, on the radio, online, in print. what happens now? >> i say i want to get on television with some facts. [laughter] here are few that have come out of this conversation. 16.9% of gdp, that is not because tax rates went down. it is because the economy went down. tax rates -- there is no revenue. [indiscernible] in the years before the collapse, the income as well over 18% of gdp. >> it has been over 18% twice. two y
